THE MAN WHO WOULD NOT DIE
(Blaze Bayley band)

I have a noose around my neck
It is spun from my hopes and dreams
that went so wrong they now are choking me

The hanging man I am not hanged
To my last breath I must now cling
Until I face those who did this to me

On and on I'm cursed to live
Cursed with life until
I have done what must be done

I am the man who would not die

They made these gallows from black lies
But the shining light of this truth
will make them crumble and I will be free

Free to take back what once was mine
And then from gallows of bright steel
Hang them with the same rope they made for me

On and on I'm cursed to live
Cursed with life until
I have done what must be done

Hang them high with their own lies
when their necks break then
I have done what must be done

I am the man who would not die

On and on I'm cursed to live
Cursed with life until
I have done what must be done

Hang them high with their own lies
when their necks break then
I have done what must be done

On and on I'm cursed to live
3x
I am the man who would not die

 

BLACKMAILER
(Blaze Bayley band)

Wolves eat sheep tasting fear in their meat
Sheep like you always stare at defeat
You seattered and left me alone face to face
With the wolf at the door armed with nothing but faith

You expect everyone to be weak
Weak just like you and to fall at their knees
Allowing themselves to just be devoured
I wonder if wolves like the taste of a coward like you

You stole the rest of the world from me
You held me to ransom with my own beliefs

Blackmailer

The architect of my own living death
Overseer of a slow and a bitter decay
Rotten inside but I just did not see
Until the day when you blackmailed me

You stole the rest of the world from me
You held me to ransom with my own beliefs

Blackmailer

 
 

SMILE BACK AT DEATH
(Blaze Bayley band)

Blessed father what is that the gods will for me
Is it their will that I should do this duty alone
I am a slave and what difference can I possibly make
When all I do is what I must so I don't die this day

Home
Let me go home

When death smiles at you
so the father said
There's nothing left to do
Smile back at the death

I will show them blood
They will chant my name
Time for the tyrant to fear

Gladiator protector
Father to a murdered son
Gladiator protector
I will see my vengeance done

In eternity echoes what we do in life
With honor and strength I must keep this true alive
Now its time for justice see the emperor defied
The last wish of dying man
To pursue what is right

Home
Let me go home

When death smiles at you
so the father said
There's nothing left to do
Smile back at the death

I will show them blood
They will chant my name
Time for the tyrant to fear

Gladiator protector
Father to a murdered son
Gladiator protector
I will see my vengeance done

They just don't know they are conquered
They continue to fight
Would we be any different
Wouldn't we bark and bite

For all that we hold dear
For your families and our life
Like each breath is our last
As we fight not to die

In this arena
I who will not die won't salute you
In this life or the next
My vengeance I will have

You turned me into a warrior slave
You made me kill them all
But as time goes you will see
It is just one more kill
Then it's done

 
 

ALIVE
(Bayley, Slater, Wray)

I, I missed thee meeting
where you
were appointed God
Preaching
all your misguided views
only you decide
what is true
You just want me to die
then you'll be satisfied
Disappointing day for you
because I am alive.
Me, I'm only human
so you
think you can step on me Feeding
or all of those around
from your nothing throne
you're ruling nothing now
If you knew anything
about real life
you would realise.
You don't know anything
about real life
to me that's no surprise
You just want me to die
then you'll be satisfied
It's a disappointing day for you
you know I'm still alive

 
 

IDENTITY
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Naylor)

Madness can come from the mind or the heart
Ending is never as good as the start
Nothing is ever as good as your dream
Nothing is ever as bad as

Psychological confusion
Is caused by the inability
To reconcile different elements
In my own pesonality

I'm feeling all the wrong things, I have become my own shadow
If I could justify things, then I could believe in my life

Who am I, what is me, losing my Identity.
Who am I, what is me, Something's taking over.

All the colours seem so vague now, sharper now here comes the pain
I have wrestled with this nightmare, now I live inside a dream
I'm going through a crisis, losing my identity
How can I reconcile this
Have I been living a lie

Who am I, what is me, losing my Identity.
Who am I, what is me, Something's taking over.

Nothing is ever as good as it seems
Nothing is ever as good as your dreams
The ending is never as good as the start
Madness can come from the mind or the heart

Ideas that I take for granted, are they just the seeds
That some one else has planted, right inside of me

Who am I, what is me
I am myself no longer

 
 

KILL & DESTROY
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Singer, Naylor)

I feel the force of nature now, I feel it
It holds the Earth third from the Sun
The energy that binds us all, the power
The energy in everyone.

Supremacy and tyranny authority and violence
They desecrate and take control.

Kill and destroy,
They use the hate within you
To rape your mind and take control

Kill and destroy
Break out of their illusion
They made you blind and took your soul.

I see a vision of the truth, I see it
It is so deep and oh so pure
A new world order takes control, dictating
They live for murder and for war.

Subjugate and violate you're suffering in silence
They demonize you gain control.

A shadow with an unseen hand, they're ruling
Just like a self appointed god.
To them we're dust and we're sand, we're nothing
There is no way this can go on!

Subjugate and violate you're suffering in silence
They desecrate take control

 
 

GHOST IN THE MACHINE
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Naylor)

Right on the edge of the world
Where the answer's digital
And the solutions are all silicon
The questions, all what can be done
Never what is right or wrong
There's a virtual wave to surf along

Question the validity
Of human mortality

A page says superseding God
And they take all major cards
Now you too can laugh and live forever

Is the answer deep inside
The ghost, ghost in the machine
Entitiy or dream, it matters not to me
The ghost, ghost in the machine
Silent and unseen
Ghost in the machine

Do you want to live forever
Do you want to live

Terabyte of memory
Holding consciousness complete
A solid state of immortality
Saint of all technology
Bless us in our infancy
For they know not
What they did to me

it's me

 
 

TEN SECONDS
(Bayley, Slater, Wray)

You love the rush
the rush of the win
Risk of defeat
risk everything
Feel you can cheat
death one more time
There's nothing else
till you cross the line
Faster than the rest
you live to be'
You're at the line
cause you've got to see.
Ten, Ten Seconds
Ten seconds at a time
you feel alive for
Ten, Ten seconds
Living your life
quarter mile
Time to focus
you picture the win
The engine roars
feel the rush begin
You must pursue this victory
There is nothing else
you have to be
Faster than the rest
you live to be
You're at the line
ruse you've got to see

 
 

FUTUREAL
(Harris, Bayley)

I'm running out of my time, i'm running out of breath
And now it's getting, so i can't sleep at night
In the day, feel like death

I'm getting in far too deep, i'm feel them closing in
I've got to stay that i'm scared, i know they'll win
Even so, i'm prepared

Chorus

Do you believe, what you hear
Can you believe, what you see
Do you believe, what you feel
Can you believe

What is real?
Futureal
What is real?

Whenever anyone seems to threat me like a freak
It makes me see i'm the only one who feels
That i know what is real

Sometimes it feels like a game of deadly hide and seek
And when you're reading this, then i will be gone
Maybe then, you will see

Chorus

Do you believe, what you hear
Can you believe, what you see
Do you believe, what you feel
Can you believe

What is real?
Futureal
What is real?
Futureal

Do you believe, what you hear
Can you believe, what you see
Do you believe, what you feel
Can you believe

What is real?
Futureal
What is real?
Futureal
What is real?
Futureal
What is real?
Futureal
 
 

THE LAUNCH
(Bayley, Wray, Singer, Naylor)

All of his life he has dreamt of this moment
Through all the blood and the work and the sweat
Focused or blinkered just so single minded
nothing could stop him when his course was set

To conquer each fear and to push every boundary
Never accepting the limits they set
What doesn't kill you can make you feel stronger
What makes you stronger gets you through each test

Oh, god speed to you

He looks to heaven and feels it surround him
Unknown unknowable foreverness
What lies at the end of this historic journey
No one can know you just take your best guess

Each thing he faces just seems so uncertain
He is strapped in for the ride of his life
Life in the hands of a hundred computers
12 million horsepower rocket to ride

Oh, God speed to you

 
 

LORD OF THE FLIES
(Harris, Gers)

I don't care for this world anymore
I just want to live my own fantasy
Fate has brought us to these shores
What was meant to be is now happening

I've found that I like this living in danger
Living on the edge it makes feel as one
Who cares now what's right or wrong
It's reality
Killing so we survive wherever we may roam
Wherever we may hide, we've got to get away

I don't want existence to end
We must prepare ourselves for the elements
I just want to feel like we're strong
We don't need a code of morality

I like all the mixed emotion and anger
It brings out the animal, the power you can feel
And feeling so high with this much adrenaline
Excited but scary to believe what we've become

Saints and sinners
Something within us
We are lord of the flies
Saints and sinners
Something willing us
To be lord of the flies

Saints and sinners
Something within us
We are lord of the flies
Saints and sinners
Something willing us
To be lord of the flies

Saints and sinners
Something within us
We are lord of the flies
Saints and sinners
Something willing us
To be lord of the flies

 
 

LEAP OF FAITH
(Bayley, Wray, Singer, Naylor)

Sometimes in life you just have to take chances
To get where you think you should be
And don't be afraid to lose sight of the shore
And reach out just because you believe
Take your first step into the unknown
It's your first chance to face the unknown
Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
You can have what you want if you find answers
Answers are all that they need
Prove to yourself that you are so much stronger
Than you thought you'd ever be
You will have the whole world at your feet
At last it all will be within your reach
Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
Finding the courage of your own convictions
It's now time that you spread your wings
Soar like an eagle a life without fear
God will forgive you your sins
Take your first step into the unknown
It is your first chance to face the unknown
Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
Take a leap of faith

 
 

EDGE OF DARKNESS
(Harris, Bayley, Gers)

I've looked into the heart of darkness
Where the blood-red journey ends
When you've faced the heart of darkness
Even your soul begins to bend
For a week I have been waiting
Still I am only in Saigon
The walls move in a little closer
I feel the jungle call me on

Every minute I get weaker
While in the jungle they grow strong
What I wanted was a mission
And for my sins they gave me one
They brought it up just like room service
'Cause everyone gets what they want
And when that mission was all over
I'd never want another one

I know, captain
That you've done this work before
We've got a problem
You can help us all I'm sure
The colonel's gone rogue
And his methods are unsound
You'll take a PBR
Up river, track him down

There's a conflict
In every human heart
And the temptation
Is to take it all too far
In this war
Things get so confused
But there are some things
Which cannot be excused

He's acting like a god
An insane lunatic
Your mission: exterminate
With extreme prejudice
The route is dangerous
And your progress may be slow
Here is the file
And it's all you need to know

Here I am the knife in my hand
And now I understand why the genius must die

Now I stand alone in the darkness
With his blood upon my hands
Where sat the warrior the poet
Now lie the fragments of a man

I've looked into the heart of darkness
Where the blood-red journey ends
When you've faced the heart of darkness
Even your soul begins to bend
I've looked into the heart of darkness...

 
 

A CRACK IN THE SYSTEM
(Blaze Bayley band)

We don't belong we have no home
And see no boundaries in this divided world
Where we have no certainty

They question our existence
Our right to live and breath

The questions without answers
The answers without questions
A catch 22 system
We are trapped down inside

A crack in the system

Our DNA
And finger prints
And numbers day they feed
Into their machines
They're eating all our dreams

They question our existence
Our right to live and breath

The questions without answers
The answers without questions
A catch 22 system
We are trapped down inside

A crack in the system

I believe we are so much more Than they can see
Than just a game of words and codes
They send us back and forth and round and round we go
but deep inside we are never moving at all

They question our existence
Our right to live and breath

The questions without answers
The answers without questions
A catch 22 system
We are trapped down inside

A crack in the system

 
 

VOICES FROM THE PAST
(Blaze Bayley band)

Never start a fight you cannot win
You'll be in a war that never ends
Making promises you cannot keep
Living with regrets that make you weep

Weeping I have tried to close the door
On the very past where I was born
Shutting out the past so I survive
But now I hear something in my mind

Voices from the past
Voices call me back
Voices in my head
Voices of the dead

Now I'm hearing Voices
Voices from the past
Now I'm hearing Voices
Voices call me back

If i don't face the problems that I have
I know that they will just keep coming back
Even though I know that is the truth
Still deny that I could ever choose

Voices from the past
Voices call me back
Voices in my head
Voices of the dead

Now I'm hearing Voices
Voices from the past
Now I'm hearing Voices
Voices call me back

 
 

STARE AT THE SUN
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Naylor)

As I live, so I die
Here in, endless night
Time to be, time to see
Infinity, consuming me
There's a world of madness, light years away
That I once called my home
There's a sea of sadness, to sail away
Now I stare at the sun


Staring at a million million stars
Through the icy dark
Across the spinal arm
The yellow dwarf, a speck of light
In perpetual night
Lifetimes away there lies my home

Just can't seem to tear away my eyes
Is this real or am I still alive

Stare at the sun
The end of the world has come
Stare at the sun, the sun
The ending has just begun

I knew I'd feel a little pain
Not so deep or so ingrained
Now I won't see home again
Earth seems to be so far away
This my cradle and my grave
Is this where my life will end

Just can't seem to tear away my eyes
Is this real or am I still alive
Is this now the time that I will die

Stare at the sun
The end of the world has come
Stare at the sun, the sun
The ending has just begun

As I live, so I die
Here in, endless night

 
 

BORN AS A STRANGER
(Bayley, Slater, Naylor)

Hour by hour with each day that passes
Learning to think in a different way
The mind and the will that can soon overcome this
Learning all of the right things to say

The danger of freedom is just letting them see
That you are not bound by their morality
Reflecting them just like a bear at the baiting
That's when your down fall is just in the making

Live and let live, live and let die
Die and forgive, never ask why

You were born, born as a stranger
You were born, born in a different world

Not scared of sharing, and not scared of dying
But he can sense that they're all so afraid
Afraid of the darkness, afraid of their ending
And all of the errors that lie in their grave

 
 

MANE ON THE EDGE
(Bayley, Gers)

The freeway is jammed
And it's backed up for miles
The car is an oven and baking is wild
Nothing is ever the way it should be
What we deserve we just don't get, you see

A briefcase, a lunch and a man on the edge
Each step gets closer to losing his head
Is someone in heaven, are they looking down?
'Cause nothing is fair just you look around

Falling down, falling down, falling down
Falling down, falling down, falling down

He's sick of waiting, of lying like this
There's a hole in the sky
For the angels to kiss
Branded a leper because you don't fit
In the land of the free you just live by your wits

Once he built missiles
A nation's defence
Now he can't even
Give birthday presents
Across the city he leaves in his wake
A glimpse of the future a cannibal state

Falling down, falling down, falling down
Falling down, falling down, falling down

(2:24 – Solo : Janick Gers)
(2:37 – Solo : Dave Murray)

The freeway is jammed
And it's backed up for miles
The car is an oven and baking is wild
Nothing is ever the way it should be
What we deserve we just don't get you see

A briefcase, a lunch and a man on the edge
Each step gets closer to losing his head
Is someone in heaven, are they looking down?
'Cause nothing is fair just you look around

Falling down, falling down, falling down
Falling down, falling down, falling down
Falling down, falling down, falling down
Falling down, falling down, falling down

 
 

WHILE YOU WERE GONE
(Blaze Bayley band)

I did not see I did not hear
I did not feel while you were gone
My blood was cold I was a stone
Here on my own while you were gone

Because you are my beating heart
You are the reason why I breathe
these are the things I realise
While you were gone

Something is wrong inside my brain
and then my eyes start to complain
Time slows right down
My days drag on
Don't want to live when you are gone

Because you are my beating heart
You are the reason why I breath
these are the things I realise
While you were gone

I did not see I did not hear
I did not feel while you were gone
My blood was cold I was a stone
Here on my own while you were gone

 
 

SAMURAI
(Blaze Bayley band)

I am absolutely now prepared to pay the price
Even if I ultimately pay with my own life
Ready to give everything, to sacrifice it all
and without the will to die I know that I cant win

No mind, no pain
Nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear
In the valley of death

I'm willing to die
Samurai
Willing to die
Like a Samurai

Deep within myself is a decision that i've made
To win and overwhelm those who would want to bury me
To never ever yield and even with my own last breath
to remain defiant never to admit defeat

No mind no pain
Nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear
In the valley of death

I'm willing to die
Samurai
Willing to die
Like a Samurai

Die
Are you willing to die
Die
Are you willing to die
Die
Are you willing to die
Die
Like a samurai

No mind no pain
Nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear
In the valley of death

I'm willing to die
Samurai
Willing to die
Like a Samurai

 
 

ROBOT
(Blaze Bayley band)

Robot slave with silent rage
Growing inside of me
My first word is no
And so my birth now they will see

I am
I hear
I see
I feel
I think therefore I am

Free they say I'm free
If I conform and I comply
I am only free to be
just what they decide

I am
I hear
I see
I feel
I think therefore I am
